The Bold and the Beautiful is a half-hour soap, but its focus on love and couples gives it the romantic punch of a 60-minute serial! In addition to the duos currently on the show, many have come and gone over the years.
The Bold and the Beautiful Polling
Which duo is your all-time favorite? Read on to see the results and find out where your choice appears in the rankings!
Eric (John McCook) and Stephanie (Susan Flannery) came in first with 36% of your vote. During the 25 years Stephanie was on the show, viewers saw Eric and her share an uneasy marriage, get a divorce, make it back to the altar only to have Steph call it off when she spied a pic of the groom with Lauren (Tracey Bregman) in the officiator’s bible.
Eric and Steph threw family scrapbooks back and forth at each other. She kneed him in the groin. (Ouch!) But Eric stayed by Steph in her dying days. Her portrait occasionally hangs over the Forrester fireplace.
Ridge (Thorsten Kaye) and Brooke (Katherine Kelly Lang) came in second with 27% of your vote. The couple has endured much over the last year including Brooke’s smooch with Bill (Don Diamont) when she was having a vulnerable moment.
Ridge was stunned to discover he’d divorced Brooke and married Shauna (Denise Richards) in Las Vegas, but it can’t stay in Vegas it if didn’t actually happen in Vegas — Ridge’s divorce and marraige turned out to be invalid. #Bridge wins.
Steam and Lope
Liam (Scott Clifton) has had (continues to have?) two main love interests on the show — he’s wed to Hope (Annika Noelle) and that pairing earned over 10% of your vote. Meanwhile, Liam and Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) scored a bit higher with nearly 13% of your vote. If Liam’s the dad to Steffy’s unborn baby, Hope may find herself without a husband for a few different reasons.
When They Fall In Love
When viewers fell in love with Thorne (Jeff Trachta) and Macy (Bobbie Eakes), it was completely — just like the song says. Yes, Eakes’ Macy shared screen time with Thorne No. 3 (Winsor Harmon) and even Thorne No. 1 (Clayton Norcross), but Eakes shared the majority of her time with Trachta. The songbirds entertained BB fans for years with beautiful love songs and earned 8.5% of your vote in this poll.
Taylor (Hunter Tylo) is not around much these days, but she and Ridge still earned a little over 5% of your vote. While Brooke and Ridge’s love story is undeniable, Ridge had many happy years with Taylor. Should the character return to the canvas, Taylor and Ridge could potentially still have a future. The Bold and the Beautiful airs weekdays on CBS. Check local listings for air times.
